Daniel Pecaut is a Harvard graduate whose insights have been featured in the New York Times, Money Magazine, Grant's Interest Rate Observer, Outstanding Investor Digest, and the Omaha-World Herald.

He has worked in investing for 30+ years and is CEO of a successful investment firm, Pecaut & Company.

This was a great read for me as a huge Buffett fan but an outsider to the finance/investment industry. The author wrote this in a very straightforward easy to read and understand format.

“occasional outbreaks of those two super-contagious diseases, fear and greed, will forever occur in the investment community. The timing of these epidemics will be unpredictable.
